speaker nancy pelosi and majority leader harry reid said yes. rush limbaugh does not like it. you will hear when you're an years what rush limbaugh thinks about these un-american comments. -- you will here with your own years -- hear with your own ears. this is a bombshell. olivia newton-john's ex- boyfriend thought to be dead for years. first, protestors were called angry mobs, and now "and american." in a "usa today" op-ed, it is written -- and now "un-american ." >> to disrupt public meetings and members of congress from conducting a civil dialogue. these interruptions are occurring because opponents are afraid not just of differing views of the facts themselves, drowning out opposing views. simply an american. so -- simply un-american. so are they? >> we are not going to do anything. >> why do you not go home? >> how dare you. how dare you think that i am part of a conspiracy. how dare you! >> something that was brought up in the early 1930's in germany. >> i hope in a civilized manner without yelling -- >> to eliminate discrimination. [yelling] >> the constitution -- greta: a
't have one. senate majority leader harry reid's annual clean energy summit in las vegas took place. natural gas getting a lot more attention out there. even al gore seemed to acknowledge the inconvenient truth that we're going to need to embrace a fuel that's just less dirty before we can get clean. my take, let's hope what happens in vegas doesn't stay in vegas for a change. there may even be the political support to get nat gas through congress, oh, wow, among other things the bill that's on the table would require an extension of the existing credits for natural gas as a transportation fuel. it would provide a tax credit for the purchase of a nat gas vehicle, require half the vehicle for federal government purchases over the next couple years to be natural gas fueled. legislation would be used for clean energy fuels, largest chain of natural gas filling stations in the country. not to mention all the natural gas companies. if this gets past they're all going to be good. the big question i have is when the political winds change for the future are the democrats finally willing to
, and harry reid has it and under president obama's direction, will use it. in this reconciliation, it's a tool, legal, part of the senate rules, you lower the vote from 60 to 50. now, people are saying on, you can't get enough stuff in there. you can get 80% to 90% of a health care plan in there. the other 10%, 20%, you can legislate inkra mentally. that's easy to do. republican reconciliation will be the vehicle they will use to pass this plan. again, another contrast to 2003, the prescription drug plan, so seniors have affordable access to plans, the far right didn't like it, the left didn't like it, i was in the middle and we pulled the group together and passed it with 60 votes. it can be done if you say we're gb going to listen to everybody. once you say we're going to cram it through with 50 votes, you can only get 50 votes and there's the risk of a big backlash. >> the senator's going to be with us for the rest of the program. we have a lot to talk about, not only with health care but also how we're seeing this ripple through the system and the markets as well. he'll be with us
: what is your prediction as to the reaction from speaker pelosi and harry reid's article yesterday? guest: there are certainly many different opinions. kathleen sebelius was speaking and a woman introduced her, and the minute they introduced her, people were screaming at her and telling her to shut up. there is certainly a hope that we can have several discussions. americans really want to talk about this and the elected representatives want to hear from you. we hope there williwill be robut debate. there is nothing with that, but it needs to be civil. host: wallace, kansas. go ahead. caller: right now the only thing we have to go by concretely, for those opposed were in favor of health-care reform, it is legislation. if we are happy with our present insurance, we will be able to maintain that. yet, if any changes are made to our plan at work, if we have a child, and someone to the policy, or we lose our job, then we would have to factor the effective date of this plan and go with the government option, leaving private insurance to wither on the vine. do you find it perhaps the dis
. it will probably be a watered down version. the biggest question is whether nancy pelosi and harry reid can convince any of the counterparts on the other side to vote with them. >> we'll continue to hear another town hall meeting with the president today in new hampshire. >> looking forward to it. >> thank you for joining us this morning. >>> it's a specially difficult time to be out of work and fox 5 is looking to help you find brand new opportunities. our job of the day coming up next after the day. >>> so you ask my opinion, i'll tell you my opinion. i'm not going to be channeling my husband. >> secretary clinton's outburst just a matter of misunderstanding. more on that question that set her off. still ahead. explain. oh yea, well for 6 months, customers get all three: fi tv, intert and phone for just $79.99 a month. oh, all right, see... i gotta cut my nai. (announcer) now get threamazing fios services for the price of two. tv, internet, and phone for only... for the first 6 months. it all adds up to one incredible deal from fios. call the verizon center for customers with disabilities
to the average voter. host: for nancy pelosi and harry reid to write the word un- american instead of off-the- cuff speech in that, what does is say to you? guest: i am surprised they used the term. i think that is probably -- it pleases the democratic base, it is probably politically very risky to say that because clearly there is some organization behind the town hall meetings, but there is clearly also some gentleman -- genuine sentiment there. you have people showing up to voice their opinion, and whether it is an organized activity or not, it is an american activity. i would have thought they would probably steer clear of those types of terms and try to stay above it. it will be interesting to see what happens when president obama has his own town hall meeting today and see what kind of reaction he gets. host: austin, colorado. republican. caller: my question has to do with more of the deficit that is going to accelerate with the government-run health care. we are approaching the $12.10 trillion deficit in october, and there is a price tag between 800 billion up to $1.20 trillion fro
